Speaking

Over the past few years there have been special events that I have really enjoyed. Travelling to the USA in 2015 and 2018 to speak about my work as a celebrant and presenting to Australian Funeral Directors in 2017 on the changing shape of funeral ceremonies.

Another Day Another Black Dress

…the service was entirely appropriate, unfailingly tasteful, and devoid of clichés and euphemisms.

Nigel, June 2017

I especially appreciate your patience & tact in listening to us all, helping us to sort things out & celebrating my sister’s life in a way she would have loved not some generic, canned procedure.

Annie S.

Your beautiful presence and warmth were a major part of the funerals success.

Jenny, January 2016

...comprehensive, dignified, well researched, very appropriate and of course totally professional.

Albert S.
